In Packhum's Latin corpus (PHI5.3), each author is identified by a four-digit code. For example, Caesar is 0448, while Cicero is 0474, and Seneca the Younger is 1017. Each work is then given a three-digit number (counting up from 001), so Seneca's Oedipus is filed under "1017 006".

Do the author numbers have any meaning? Unlike the work numbers, they don't seem to be sequential (there is no 0449, 0475, or 1018, for example), which makes me think they're conveying some other information.

  • Is there a (full) list of the author numbers somewhere? It's easier to see patterns in more data. – Joonas Ilmavirta Sep 22 at 20:53
  • @JoonasIlmavirta Here and here, though neither is in numerical order unfortunately. – Draconis Sep 22 at 20:58

In case it helps someone figure this out, here are the authors in numerical order. This is just a quick and dirty sort of the list of authors without any nice formatting.

  • This would suggest some sort of chronological order to me? Have only glanced at a few names. – Cerberus Sep 23 at 12:20
  • @Cerberus That sounds possible. Adding some years of birth and death to (some of) these names would probably tell whether that is the case. – Joonas Ilmavirta Sep 23 at 12:55
